fairy tale couture

Christian Lacroix's spring 2006 couture collection was the stuff that this femme's dreams are made of. His fairy tale ensembles were inspired by Russian princesses, Empress Josephine, Ancient Rome and the South of France. The models (churning up golden sand as they walked) were transformed into nymph like creatures sewn into shimmering clothing that belonged to another world.





The details were also ridiculously romantic, with hair in braided up and adorned with ribbons and jeweled Classical headbands...



Sigh.
